From Rolling Stone, August 4, 2021:

The second setlist, also written by McCartney, comes from an April 17th, 1963 show at the Majestic Ballroom in Luton, England. It’s written on the back of a Parlophone Records publicity postcard and is signed by all four Beatles. Beatlemania was spreading across England at this point and they’d already scored hits with “Love Me Do” and “Please Please Me,” but the setlist still includes covers like Little Richard’s “Long Tall Sally” and Arthur Alexander’s “A Shot of Rhythm and Blues.” It also features their new originals “I Saw Her Standing There,” “From Me to You,” and “Thank You Girl.”

“This setlist shows them as a working band that understands their role as entertainers,” Kramer says. “This is just one set of two played that night but we can see that they are still balancing their own developing work with songs from other artists and diverse sources.”
